Parking Lot AttendantPrint
PARKING LOT ATTENDANTS help people park their cars, or park the cars for them. They take payment from people for the time the cars are on the lot. In large automated parking lots, attendants work mostly as cashiers and collect parking fees when people leave. In some parking lots, attendants meet cars as they come in and greet the drivers. Cars are parked where attendants can easily get them when owners return. They also watch parked cars to make sure there is no theft or damage.
